Flagship species for developmental biology and genetics, the zebrafish is increasingly used in other disciplines, particularly in ecotoxicology and physiology both as an individual (overall understanding of the effects / functions) and as likely to allow the identification of molecular mechanisms underlying these effects / functions.


Sole is the first species caught by value in France. Because of its unique biology is particularly vulnerable to the effects of human activity.


The bar is the main species cultivated in France in marine aquaculture. This species is also one of the first species fished in value.
